Roasted Red Cabbage Wedges with Walnuts and Bay Leaves

© 2019 |

An easy to prepare, cost efficient, and gluten-free side dish that offers loads of antioxidants and makes a delicious accompaniment to almost any meat or fish dinner, but goes particularly well with Knusprige Schweinshaxe - German Roasted Pork Knuckle.
The humble red cabbage is incredibly versatile and brightens up the holiday table with its beautiful, intense purple colour.

  • 800 g Red cabbage
    , cut into wedges
  • 50 g Beef dripping
  • 40 g Walnuts
  • 4-5 Bay leaves
  • 1 Shallot, sliced
  • 300 ml Homemade beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • Black salt and black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Parsley leaves for garnishing
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F fan-forced. Rinse and dry red cabbage and cut into wedges. Brush a roasting pan with some of the beef dripping.
  2. Place the cabbage wedges in and brush the cabbage with the rest of beef dripping. Scatter the walnuts, sliced shallots and bay leaves over.
  3. Mix beef broth and apple cider vinegar together and pour over the cabbages. Season with black salt and black pepper. Roast in the middle of hot oven for 40-50 minutes or until just tender.

As a child I never liked cabbage, but I really love it now. This is one I need to try. Thanks Angie!

Noob Cook 23/10/19 09:37

Love that they are cut to large wedges, so convenient and good looking too! The roasted cabbage must be so flavourful esp with the beef dripping.

So funny- I roasted red cabbage the other day too! Your recipe looks very tasty and delicious!

What a beautiful little side dish! This would fit in perfectly to our annual Mardi Gras dinner.

tigerfish 27/10/19 15:48

Roasted red cabbage absorbed the natural flavors of beef dripping, beef broth, apple cider vinegar - so delicious!

G'day Souffle 28/10/19 02:23

I've always used red cabbage in salads, so roasting them is new to me! Looks like this dish would also go well with Sauerbratten- thanks for the recipe!

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 14/11/19 15:58

Somehow I missed this post, Angie! Cabbage is one vegetable that I haven't tried to roast....yet. This looks so delicious! I am a cabbage lover ;)
